    Siebers, Lana L. Mrs. Earl (Whitey) Siebers Freedom Lana grew up on the shores of Lake Winnebago, where she enjoyed swimming and having fun with cousins and friends, bonfires at night, and also going to the Lake Shore outdoor theater, as well as boating with the neighbors next door, the Cohens. She graduated from Goodrich High School in Fond du Lac, WI, in June 1960. She attended Marian College for a short time. Lana boarded her horse at Horse Shoe Springs where she met her future husband Earl (Whitey) Siebers. She worked for awhile at Standard Colesman before marrying (Whitey) on June 4, 1969, the happiest day of her life. The second happiest is when she and Whitey adopted their son Jason. Lana was a lifetime member of the American Quarter Horse Association and longtime Wisconsin Quarter Horse Association and also a lifetime member of the American Kennel Club. She enjoyed showing her horse "Lil Liza Squeeker" better known as "Jane." She received numerous awards on her horsemanship. Lana also belonged to the Genealogical Society of Appleton through the L.D.S. Church. She also taught Sunday school at Moravian Church in Freedom and volunteered at Freedom Schools. Lana enjoyed writing poetry about family and friends. Some were published in her grade school and high school reunion books of 2005. Her poetry was one of her many talents. She would sing, play her piano "by ear" and cords on her guitar. Her talents were snuffed out too soon. Lana was descended from the pioneers of Algoma. Among them the Henry Bruemmer line, the Ferdinand and Gustave Haack line, along with the Fredrick Wulf family and the W. L. McLaughlin family. She contributed many articles and pictures of the Bruemmers and the Wulfs to the Algoma Local History Resource Center in Algoma. Lana was a "bright light" that will be missed by her loving husband, Whitey; son, Jason and girlfriend Amy; daughter, Christine Okkerse; and special cousins, Sally Schoeborn and Susan Kohlbeck; especially pet golden retrievers, Shadow and Sunny. She is further survived by Bernard (Belva) Siebers, Idaho; Blanche (Bob) Mayer, Greenleaf; Elaine (Howie) Hayek, Tigerton; Sharon (Bob) Hoehne, Kaukauna; Joan (Kurt) Vogel, Whitewater; Bonnie (Don) Tomazevic, Shiocton; Harvey (Tammy) Siebers, Kaukauna; Mary (Brian) Betz, Sturgeon Bay; Mark and Kathy Siebers, Black Creek; and special family friend, Eric Marien. She was preceded in death by Deanna Guyette, Portland, OR; and Darlene Schroeder, Appleton. May her light shine even brighter in the heavens with her love and generosity. We will sadly miss you. In Greek, Lana means "Light" The funeral service will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, 2006, at BOETTCHER FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 2401 Fieldcrest Dr., Kaukauna, with Rev. Jason Andersen officiating.
